Hi, this is PART 2 on how to make a gingerbread house... If you haven't already please check out part 1. There are no fixed ingredients here as this guide is mainly just decorating, enjoy!
We'll decorate one piece at a time then sticking it together
Mix up some thick royal icing, add a bit of water at a time... You can add more but you cannot take
Put your icing into a piping bag (we got a new tala one)
We're doing tiles for the roof, but it's up to you
A marshmallow Dorset looks great!
Sorry for the lack of photos, royal icing dries FAST!
Knead your regal icing...
...for some curtains!
Get the last of your icing, also a bigger nozzle
Pipe a line on the base
To make a square
Join the walls
I made this mistake... The little walls rest on the big walls, not this way!!! Ours fell apart
Take a pic before it falls to bits!
Prop it up with some jars n stuff
Ours isn't the height of fashion but I would at least call it a family attempt! Of course we will pretty it up tomorrow, not in this guide I'm afraid!
We'll surround ours with men and tree's, I should hopefully post a pic soon, or I'll post a comment if it falls to bits 😞
Please like, follow and most importantly comment! Feedback is the best, merry Christmas to all the families who see this guide and to all a happy new year, bye!
